Things blocked by Web Shield are not stored in Virus Chest because they are just blocked. You should be getting a popup though...

Plus without more details, no one is going to be able to even hazard a guess (much less investigate) if the detection is good or not.

As RejZoR mentions you should be getting a popup alert and that is the starting point for any investigation.
